For SCIENCE students

As a science student you might be interested in our Master program with focus on Synchrotron Radiation Physics (by MAX-Faculty of Science at MAX IV) or the Bachelor program “Science with Photons and Neutrons” by the Physics department. If you are not interested in a whole program you can take one or several of our courses.

PHYSICS STUDENT

If you are studying physics we think you might enjoy starting with the course MAXC11- Production of Photons and Neutrons for Science since it will give you a good overview of what we do here at MAX IV.

BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY OR GEOLOGY STUDENT

If you are studying biology or chemistry and want to know more about synchrotron radiation based science and how you could use it we think you might like to start with the course MAXM06 – Introduction to Synchrotron Radiation Based Science because it will give you a great introduction to the subject and be a good base for future studies.

Courses that can be included in your bachelor or master programs

For ENGINEERING students

As a engineering student you can choose to study a specialization in Accelerators – Engineering and Physics at the Engineering Physics Program (F) at Lund University, Faculty of Engineering.

Specialization courses


MASTER PROGRAM IN SYNCHROTRON RADIATION BASED SCIENCE

A Master program in Synchrotron Radiation Based Science gives you hands-on experience from an accelerator laboratory. The program includes specialised courses in accelerator physics and synchrotron radiation-based science. During the Master´s degree project will you work closely with a research group here at MAX IV. The remaining courses may be chosen from within the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Engineering. This means that you are partly able to design your Master´s degree.

CAREER PROSPECTS

With an MSc in Synchrotron Radiation-Based Science, you are well prepared for work in industries related to accelerators and synchrotron light instrumentation, as well as for PhD studies in several disciplines.
